So I take it these bad dogs are not on Obama's shortlist for Supreme Court Justice appointments?

Why not? Our conservative legislators would not affirm Jesus Christ if Obama put him up for Supreme Court Justice. Why waste time on a legitimate nominee just put one of these slime balls up.

AlexClarke: I can see Ted Cruz volubly pushing one of these disbarred attorneys if he or she promised to uphold the conservative line. Best, Don Bauder

Ponzi: I think you can be reasonably certain that these disbarred attorneys will not be candidates for the Supreme Court. Best, Don Bauder

Technically, you don't have to be a lawyer to be appointed to the Supreme Court

So, maybe Don Bauder would like to try a Recess Appointment to the Supreme Court?!
